#22 (red wax) - finished in a French Oak Cabernet cask for 18 months
Vanilla bean, caramel, and dried red fruits make themselves apparent in the nose as soon as they hit the glass. With a little time, these red fruits develop deeper into a raisin quality. The aromas of grape are subtle and expertly interwoven into an array of classic bourbon flavors all sewn together with a finesse that only French oak can bring. The palate is gentle, silky, and very smooth, leaving you doubting its true alcohol weight, all while punching way above its class. If Macallan 12 and a Four Roses OBSQ barrel made a baby while vacationing in Indiana, this is what it would taste like.
